Gent’s it’s over you. Show you care and dress up for the occasion. Our friends at Politix have a range of suits that are versatile for work and play. Their Finley Suit in New Navy is our pick for the season – Navy is definitely THE colour.

Let’s not forget shoes! Pair your new suit with tan accessories. The Trent Nathan Harvey Lace Up Derby Shoe ($169.95) from Myer will help you put your best foot forward.

Now we can’t do all the work, you’ll have to organise the day, we can only help you get ready.

Lots of love Forrest Chase!

Fillies, fascinators & frocks

Ladies, it's time to dust off your feathery fascinators and oversized floral headpieces- it's the Spring racing carnival again.

This year's hottest trends include dark blooms in shades of pink and blue; pretty pastels and printed silks; and lovely lady-like silhouettes reminiscent of 1950s with tailored skirts and handkerchief tops.

Be forewarned though - the fashion police will be out this year, cracking down on crop tops and midriff exposing ensembles at the Melbourne Cup festivities. Our recommendation? Keep it classy and use your fascinators to give your outfit its eye-opening wow factor.

Spring Sunnies

08 September 2014, by Forrest Chase


The Telstra Perth Fashion Festival is fast approaching and it won’t be long before the Perth fashion community will be joining forces to support Western Australian designers. We can’t wait to watch the amazing local talent strut their stuff down the runway!

Each year, the dedicated team behind Telstra Perth Fashion Festival promise exciting and appealing shows with fresh and innovative faces and this year will be no exception (don’t forget the Forrest Chase show on September 19th at 12pm!). To get you ready for Spring and the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival we have put together a collection of sunglasses that are sure to protect your eyes as well as ensure you are travelling to and from Perth CBD in utmost style.

Our friends at Sunglass Hut have truly delivered this season with a range of different styles to wear on any occasion. The Ray-Ban ‘Clubmaster’ ( bottom left $309.95) are not only on-trend but they may be the most convenient pair of sunglasses we’ve ever seen! Without compromising on quality, the ‘Clubmaster’ is a classic Ray-Ban style that folds at the bridge of the sunglasses to become a neat and compact accessory that will fit anywhere. This particular pair of sunglasses is timeless and is sure to make heads turn.

For an edgy yet laidback look, try the ‘Cubist’ (Top left $39.95) sunglasses from Sportsgirl. A classically structured pair of shades, the ‘Cubist’ are for those cool kids who want to add a bit of sparkle to their outfit. We recommend pairing these sunglasses with a nude piece like this the Self Tie Trench Coat from Witchery ($249.95 see in store at Forrest Chase for details) or let your sunglasses make their own statement by wearing an all-black ensemble. Either way, Sportsgirl have yet again nailed it with their selection of shades and the best part? At only $39.95, they don’t break the bank.

For the brave, we have sourced this amazing pair of Miu Miu sunglasses (Middle right $490.00), also available from Sunglass Hut. Their unique frames are a definite standout piece and even if you have no idea what to wear to the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival, don’t worry because these shades will steal all the limelight anyway! With a choice of five colours, Miu Miu have truly delivered this season and although our credit cards may not, everyone else will be thanking you for rocking such an awesome accessory.

Who doesn’t love a bit of reflective action? Ray-Ban have hit the nail on the head with this pair of rock star aviators that are the epitome of awesome (Bottom right $249.95). The combinations of colours are endless so no matter what your outfit, Sunglass Hut has you covered. Ray-Ban aviators are the ultimate pair of sunglasses for those channelling the current sport-luxe trend that Perth is loving oh so much.

The pick from Portmans is the ‘All Day, All Night’ sunglasses and the name embodies exactly what these sunglasses are – a classic and versatile accessory that can be worn at any time of day (Top right $39.95). If you are heading to a day runway show, the ‘All Day, All Night’ sunglasses are a great extra addition to an outfit and the tortoiseshell is so timeless.

Speaking of international runways, Prada have released a unique cat-eye pair of sunglasses that sunglass lovers all over the world are swooning over (Middle left $390.00). The quality is undeniable and the materials used epitomise Prada’s brand vision. They are completely exclusive which means if you want to be one of a kind at the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival this year, these one of a kind sunglasses are the pair for you. You can snag a pair of these Prada sunglasses from Myer in Forrest Chase.

So no matter the occasion, budget or outfit, Forrest Chase has you covered for sunglasses this season. Sunglasses are the perfect accessory as they are practical yet can also complete an entire look. If you are heading to any shows at the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival, ensure you make the time to pop in to Forrest Chase to view our exclusive selection of sunglasses and sit front row with your shades, à la Anna Wintor.

Here’s to spring!

Resolution Revolution

07 January 2014, by Rachael Ciccarelli

2014 New Years 1

Image source: media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com.

Let me guess: it’s a new year, a clean slate and you are totally going to change your exercise habits this year (read: you are going to do some/ any at all). You’re ready to take care of yourself. You want to see some muscle tone or at the very least, would like to be able to run up a flight of stairs without having to stop halfway to catch your breath. Funny thing: I’m resolving to do the same. And I bet you and I share the same resolutions with a lot of hungover, bloated people all over the world. Why? Because we often make the resolution (often in the same breath as declaring we’ll never drink again) and then take no steps to keep it. Or take a few, very small steps and then stop for a drinks break. That’s why you promise yourself the same thing year in, year out. But 2014 is going to be different: we’re putting our money where our mouths are.

2014 New Years 2

Getting into some sweet exercise gear is a great motivator: you’re far more likely to actually hit the gym if you’re wearing designated work out wear rather than re-purposed slouch around the house trackies, and you’re less likely to do harm to yourself (or your bust) if you’re repping the correct clothes. Don’t try to run in your hideously old trainers, you’ll end up with shin splints. Those dudes down at Athletes Foot are nice, they know what they’re talking about and they’ll get you in the right runners for your feet (and your exercise plans). Sportsgirl has also started a line of activewear and it is cute, functional and not overly expensive: the best of everything. Of course, the best way to force yourself into the gym is to actually acquire a gym membership: Fitness First Forrest Chase is centrally located, so there’s no going home and potentially staying home post-work, there are heaps of classes to get you started, and you can give it a try with their free pass (just sign up here: fitnessfirst.com).
